“Eating meat is so good for you- it’s full of cholesterol and diseases that give your body so much vitamins you need in order to live. You can’t get these delicious nutrients from anything but meat! Animals are ours to kill and use for food and entertainment; if we weren’t meant to eat them, they wouldn’t be made of meat. No one cares about animals because they are stupid and worthless- the only purpose they serve is for us to eat them. You know, except for my dog and my cat, they are so different from other animals because they actually have feelings. Being vegetarian makes you lack the things you need from food; only eating fruits and vegetables has to be boring and malnutrition. Converting children to this life style is sick and wrong- it’s abuse! Forget about the stupid animals and think about yourself, don’t waste your lives on them.” – My mom
Really? Oh, I see. I’m definitely going to eat meat now!!
Your mom is right about animals being healthy for you, it’s true! Humans have always hunted animals for a source of food, but using animals has grown into a business rather than for surviving. These animals are tortured. There is nothing wrong with “free range” meat and non-vegan foods! She is NOT correct however, about only certain animals having feelings. All animals do indeed have feelings. Oh, and the fact she says killing animals for entertainment is just sick…
What if someday, something bigger than us comes and just says: “They’re full of cholesterol and vitamins that you need in order to life- we have every right to eat them.”? Then you’ll be eaten by them, just as you eat animals. Would you want that? Animals have feelings, too… (Bacon had a mom, you know?)
